Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS):

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders among females. PCOS has a diverse range of causes that are not entirely understood, but there is strong evidence that it is largely a genetic disease. PCOS produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age. It is thought to be one of the leading causes of female “sub- fertility” and the most frequent endocrine problem in women of reproductive age. Finding that the ovaries appear polycystic on ultrasound is common. The most common immediate symptoms are anovulation, excess androgenic hormones, and insulin resistance. Anovulation results in irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, and ovulation-related infertility. Hormone imbalance generally causes acne and hirsutism. Insulin resistance is associated with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol levels. The symptoms and severity of the syndrome vary greatly among affected women.


Dysmenorrhea:

Dysmenorrhea is a medical condition of pain during menstruation that interferes with daily activities. Still, dysmenorrhea is often called simply as menstrual pain, or at least menstrual pain that is excessive.


Menorrhagia:

Menorrhagia is an abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period at regular intervals. Menorrhagia can be caused by abnormal blood clotting, disruption of normal hormonal regulation of periods, or disorders of the endometrial lining of the uterus. Depending upon the cause, it may be associated with abnormally painful periods. A normal menstrual cycle is 21–35 days in duration, with bleeding lasting an average of 5 days and total blood flow between 25 and 80 ml. A blood loss of greater than 80 ml or lasting longer than 7 days constitutes menorrhagia. It is possible to estimate the amount of bleeding by the number of tampons or pads a woman uses during her period.


Metrorrhagia:

Metrorrhagia is uterine bleeding at irregular intervals, particularly between the expected menstrual periods.


Uterine fibroid:

Uterine fibroid is a benign tumor that originates from the smooth muscle layer of the uterus. Fibroids are often multiple and if the uterus contains too many benign tumor to count.
